The recent norovirus outbreaks on cruise ships have been in the front headlines the past few weeks. However, passengers on the P&O Oriana were dealing with a different type of sickness this past week when the ship sailed through a storm off of the coast of Spain.
Check out this video of the MV Oriana that was taken by Eloy TP.
The cruise ship was sailing near the Port of La Coruna when the video was taken. The port is located on the Atlantic Ocean, on the northwest tip of Spain.
For passengers who are afraid of getting seasick on a cruise, there are some tips that can help you from getting sick. There is no word from the cruise line how many passengers were sick from the rough seas.
